Slightly stinky Stapelia

This guy is only mildly stinky. I like how the petals fold back and look so much like a starfish out of the water! All the hairs on it are lovely in the sun.

Take a look... if you want

It says it is a gettleffii, but it is not the same as the other ones I have. So, no, I don't know what variety it is.

The "leaves" look like the one that I have that is labelled "S. gettleffii"...
